: I have just finished reading Cold Mountain (after waiting 3 months for my turn to read one of my library's copies). I enjoyed it very much and I have to admit Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe once again played the hero and heroine! I wish Michael Mann would get the whole gang together again to film this novel in our beloved mountains!
Hi, Gretchen! I just finished reading this before Christmas (working on Midnight In the Garden of Good & Evil now), and I loved it. I was glad to see it listed in the new BookStore here on this site. If you haven't checked out the Bookstore, do so as soon as you can. Rich & Elaine have done it again!
But, Gretchen, alas...too late for Michael Mann to make your envisioned film. Anthony Minghella has beaten him to it...he contracted (bought?) the film last year and I'm eagerly awaiting news on the casting. (In case you aren't familiar with Anthony Minghella, he directed The English Patient, a feast for the eyes and the soul, so I have high hopes he'll do something equally splended with Cold Mountain.) I agree it would be marvelous to see Daniel Day-Lewis & Madeleine Stowe once again surrounded by the North Carolina mountains...I can see them doing justice to the parts, too.
